This interview includes specific advise to write a manifesto and build a community around your mission; whatever that is.

Lori Deschene on Building a Passionate Online Community

Lori Deschene’s tiny buddha is one of the coolest blogs online. Why? Because Lori has cultivated one of the most engaged and well intentioned communities I’ve ever seen. There are a lot of guest posts written by non-writers – they don’t even have a blog to link oo. The comments are often very personal and insightful responses to the articles. Basically, tiny buddha IS NOT about self promotion, getting “hits” on Google Analytics or earning a lot of money. Instead, it’s built from the ground up to be a community where people are safe to share wisdom that enriches our lives.

Inspired?

Me too.

The Highly Profitable Traffic Strategy You Aren’t Using Yet

You like free, right?

Ana is an expert on free traffic sources, but doesn’t write about paid traffic.

She wouldn’t even know how.

And here’s the thing – why would Ana pay?

Traditional paid traffic sources aren’t designed for her.

Google ads are for big brands. They are a waste of time and money for bloggers and entrepreneurs.

AND YET, Ana sells banner advertising space on her blog.

Clearly paid traffic works for somebody.

There is a paid traffic strategy that will work for you.

Master this strategy and you’ll get enormous amounts of targeted traffic fast and cheap.

What’s the strategy?

Direct media buys.

An Easy Way to Decrease Your Unsubscribe Rate

Frustrated with unsubscribes on your newsletter?

You aren’t alone. Most of the metrics associated with our newsletters are fun to watch.

  • Subscribe rate going up? Cool.
  • Open rate rising? Awesome.
  • Clickthrough rate skyrocketing? Yahoo!

So, what is it about unsubscribe rates that is so darn frustrating? Maybe it’s the feeling of rejection that the reader no longer finds enough value in our work. Perhaps it’s the wondering whether they only ever signed up to get our download-bait. Or it could even just be the dissatisfaction of not knowing why all these people are unsubscribing.

Whatever the reason, wouldn’t it be nice if we could just put a stop to unsubscribes for good?

Six Steps To Becoming an Authority Blogger

This article originally appeared as a guest post I wrote for Big Girl Branding.
